SWAHILI & WOLOF INSTRUCTOR
The African and African Diaspora Studies Program (AADS) and the Department of Modern Languages (ML) at Florida International University (FIU) invites applications for two half-time instructor positions- one for Swahili and one for Wolof. The Swahili instructor will teach two levels of Swahili language and culture courses as well as two courses focused on the appli-cant’s specialty as determined in consultation with the AADS Director. The Wolof instructor will teach two levels of Wolof language and culture courses as well as two courses focused on the applicant’s specialty as determined in consultation with the AADS Director. Applicants familiar with communicative proficiency-based methods of foreign-language teaching pre-ferred (although training for the teaching of foreign languages will be provided to successful applicant once in the position). Requirements: native or near-native fluency in Swahili for the Swahili instructor and Wolof for the Wolof instructor and English for both; and minimum de-gree M.A. in any field of the humanities or the social sciences. MA in (West) African Lan-guages and Literature preferred but not required. Experience teaching Swahili (for the Swahili instructor ) or Wolof (for the Wolof instructor) at the college level is a plus. The initial ap-pointment will be for two years with possibility of renewal contingent upon funding. Qualified candidates should apply to Job Opening 509015 (Swahili) or 509014 (Wolof) at fac-ultycareers.fiu.edu and attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and statement of teaching phi-losophy as a single PDF file or individual attachments. We also require candidates to send a copy of their complete application files to Africana@fiu.edu with the subject heading “Instruc-tor Position.” Candidates are instructed to provide names and contact information for at least three references who will be contacted as determined by the search committee. To receive full consideration, applications and required materials should be received by March 1, 2015. Review of applications will begin on that day. Send inquiries to: Reyni Valerio at firstname.lastname@example.org
